Lord Will Mackenzie listed dead to the world, now a ghost in the highlands reaping justice for the injustice done to the people of Scotland. Josette Oswald once a model for the painters in France has been in love with Will Mackenzie since the day he walked in on his brother Alex painting Josette. Will would pass in and out of her life, she even would sometimes help him in his intel gathering. Wanting Josette safe Will set her and Glenna up in London with a boardinghouse to make a living. Josette needs him to help her and a group of Scots women to find the lost gold said to be somewhere in Scotland. When they go undercover as a previous played couple Josette makes it known it will be hands off. If not she looses all sense when he touches her. When Josette learned more of Will secrets and plans she more determined to keep him at arms length, if it was only that simple because with the bad also comes the knowledge of the truly good man that is Will Mackenzie. The more Will is with Josette he knows that he can truly never leave her behind again, now he just has to convince Josette to take a chance on him. I loved how strong willed Josette was and that she loved Will so much but would let him go for her own good. If he could not settle down and stay in one place, she would leave. She needed stability for her and her daughter Glenna. Jennifer Ashley is one of my favorite historical romance writers her books are fun, full of family that is always in and out of the books. The suspense and intrigue is always nail biting and the sexy times is sweet and intense. I highly recommend her books you can’t go wrong. The first book in this series is one of my all time favorite book ever, The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie so so good!!!

4.5* I received an eARC at no cost from the author, in exchange for an honest and voluntary review. I love Jennifer Ashley. I've read some of her historical romances, some of her mysteries and I keep finding myself entertained for hours. First of all, I have to admit this wasn't the first book I read in 2019. I started the year with a book that just wasn't doing it for me. And so, when The Devilish Lord Will arrived in my inbox, I almost jumped with happiness - better times were coming! As usual, I was not disappointed. This book is full of adventure, and romance, and family and friends, and courage, so much courage. Josette (Josie) and Will have a great chemistry, it worked so well with the story line of the book. Both characters are stubborn, and they both what's best for one another - of course will know what that is, right? It was fun to see different personas for Will and Josie, and at the same time, never lose track of who they really are. It's difficult to sometimes not lose ourselves in the variations we create, but Jennifer Ashley managed to showcase this experience wonderfully. This book happens after the Jacobite rebellion, and when the English think all the Mackenzies are dead. We know they aren't and, we readers, want Kilmorgan, their ancestral home, back on its feet almost as much - if not more- than the characters. And so, it's great joy that we follow Will and Josie's adventure looking for French Gold, for a way to bring Kilmorgan back to its former glory, and to help families that were broken apart but, most importantly, to find each other and stay together. A book full of adventure and romance that keeps us readers happy for hours and leaves us wanting for more.

Lush, Passionate, Strong Hero/Heroine, Quest, Caretaker, all of these describe Jennifer Ashley's powerful conclusion to the Jacobite MacKenzies. No one writes Scottish romance better than Jennifer Ashley...well Amy Jarecki is right there with her. Will MacKenzie is a dead man. He's listed among the dead from The Battle of Culloden along with his Da and brothers. In reality only Duncan died, the others escaped to France, his brother Angus having died in a different skirmish. Will has always considered himself "the spare" of the family and set himself to be the helper and caretaker of the family. His Da, Alec, oldest & painter and youngest Malcolm with a passion for Kilmorgan, are safe in France, He is a "ghost" in Scotland, harassing the British, rescuing Scots and gleaning secrets. He allows himself to be captured to find out what the British are planning. His on again-off again lover & partner in sleuthing rescues him from what she is sure death. Josette, Mrs. Oswald, single mother and former artists model for Alec cannot live in a world where Will isn't. Oh I adored this strong, intelligent and passionate woman. She is perfect for Will and he's finally figured that out. He's got one last quest to fulfill for his family before he can rest. Along the way he rescues so many lives, from the women Josette is helping, to an old clan enemy, Bhreac. He's my favorite kind of man, a guardian protector all about family, those he loves and his beloved Scotland. You simply HAVE to read this story. It's one of her best and that's saying something after her story The Madness of Lord Ian MacKenzie! Thank you Jennifer for the opportunity to review this story for you.

Lord Will Mackenzie is, in his own way, fighting the English in Scotland even though Culloden was a year before. His name is on the list of deceased though he’s still trying to discover if the French gold was ever delivered or found. A group of women, including his love, Josette, and her daughter Glenna, are also trying to locate it. They pretend to be an English couple to search an Englishman’s Scottish estate. While there, they run into Captain Robert Ellis who knows Will. They agree to help each other as the captain is not certain about the owner of the estate. They eventually go to Edinburgh and seek help from Lord Wilfort, his brother’s father-in-law. There is so much more going on and I will not spoil this wonderful book. My favorite line is “Tis in our nature to fight. We don’t like others telling us what to do with our lands, our people.” Whether they discover treasure or true love, is for you to read. I love this book and can easily recommend it.

I received an ARC of this book to read in exchange for a fair review. The Devilish Lord Will by Jennifer Ashley is the tenth book in her fabulous Mackenzies /McBrides series. This book takes place prior to the first books and I would suggest at a minimum reading books 8 and 9 in the series prior to reading this one, as they all relate to one another and explain the history of the time. Prior to Culloden, gold was sent from France to aid the Jacobite cause, it went missing and Josette Oswald hopes to track it down in order to help free some of the Scottish prisoners. To do so she enlists the help of Will Mackenzie. Will and Josette have worked together in schemes before and it’s going to take all of their combined ingenuity to solve the secret of the missing gold. Danger, mystery, evil villains, betrayal and vengeance all play a part in this exciting second chance at love story. Medium Steam. Publishing Date January 15, 2019 #JenniferAshley #TheDevilshLordWill
